In my case I actually had to replace the bushings as well. Half of one was missing on the driver'* side. I was kinda waiting to wear the pads out before i did the brakes, but then the rotor pulsation and the low brake pedal was kinda concerning me.

I started taking out my engine yesterday. Just lacking a 34mm socket, but that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Just got her and my plans for the spring/summer are:
-2.5 inch dual exhaust with twin tips on each side
-K&N or similar cold air or fender well intake
-Just installed my sony x-plod headunit
-Just installed my Rockford Fosgate sub
-Car came with JBL speakers
-Fix the scratches, then polish clay and wax
-Clear the turn singles
-Tent the taillights
-Paint the large dips in the rims white and the small ones black
-Paint the Calipers Blue
-Blue angle eyes in the lights
-Blue under hood accents
-Custom Sub box

And whatever else comes along..
Happy Modding!

The exhaust should be stainless already. Do you have holes, or just surface rust? There are write-ups for almost everything you want to do, so good luck!

there are approximately 7 small holes 5 in the floor one in the rear passanger side wheel well and one in the trunk i have access to all kinds of tools and materials bein a millwright and all so I should be able to patch em up nice and easily as for the exhaust it doesnt look stainless i might just have to clean it up... do you know if most bonnevilles seats and what not are interchangable between years? also Id like to look into tweaking under the hood for more performance the cars a beast as it is but I know she can do better
